I am a Science teacher at St. Stephen's Episcopal School in Austin, TX
I currently teach Chemistry and Biology, but I've also taught Middle School science, Environmental Science, Algebra and Geometry.

I'm originally from upstate New York (near Albany) and lived in several places before settling in Austin in 1996 with my husband and two children. Said children are almost grown up now (16 and 20), leaving me with time for new ventures, such as getting up to speed on technology.

I'm enjoying PLP so far and looking forward to trying lots of new things this year.
